Emirates takes passengers for a ride

On a recent trip from the UK to Australia I made the mistake of flying
Emirates. Charged £33 per kilo excess baggage for a small additional
suitcase weighing 12 kilos I boarded the plane feeling suitably stung
only to find another passenger had been charged only £24 per kilo. Upon
arriving in Dubai, and again Singapore, I discovered passengers could
board with any weight in duty free they liked. A colleague flying on
another airline with an additional 17 kilos was charged nothing at all.
Never again Emirates.
